Potted Potter Apparates into the Edison on Friday
We all know the story: orphaned Harry learns at age eleven that he is a wizard and gets whisked away to Hogwarts, where his magical life truly begins, but who has time to read all seven books or watch all eight movies while at school? “Potted Potter” gives us all seven “Harry Potter” books and 360 characters in just 70 hilarious minutes. “Potted Potter – the Unauthorized Harry Experience – A Parody by Dan and Jeff” is written and performed by two-time Olivier Award-nominated actors Daniel Clarkson and Jefferson Turner.
Toronto Star calls it “the single funniest thing I have seen in ages.” This performance will be sure to excite Potterheads and non-believers, alike, as Dan and Jeff recreate the scenes where Harry makes friends, falls in love and battles evil. And the pop culture references aren’t strictly from J.K. Rowling’s universe as the two actors throw in clever calls to “Wicked” and “Lord of the Rings.” They even fit in a game of Quidditch!
“Potted Potter” will be performing in Edison Theater this Friday, February 15th at 7:30 and 9:30. Tickets are on sale in the box office.
